Intestinal Permeability And Leaky Gut Test




The Intestinal Permeability And Leaky Gut Urine Test

The Leaky Gut Syndrome Test is a precise, non invasive urine test for evaluating the permeability of the intestinal wall.  Changes in intestinal permeability are associated with many health conditions including autism, autoimmune disorders, food sensitivities and inflammatory bowel disease or inflammatory bowl syndrome (IBS).  This ‘leaky gut’ causes disease because the damaged intestinal lining allows toxic molecules and undigested foods to enter the bloodstream and poison the body, further the damaged lining also causes malabsorption of essential nutrients.

About the Intestinal Permeability And Leaky Gut Urine Test

The Intestinal permeability and leaky gut test is a simple urine test that can be done from home or work place.  The test measures the levels of lactulose and mannitol which are reliable indicators for determining a leaky gut.

About Leaky Gut

Among non-communicable diseases, intestinal permeability (leaky Gut) also called (metabolic endotoxemia) is the number 1 leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide (so take this test now). Metabolic endotoxemia is a condition that stems from dysbiosis and a breakdown of intestinal barrier function.  Intestinal permeability is present in most chronic diseases and is believed to be the major driver of many conditions.

The gastrointestinal tract has two main functions; a) to digest and absorb important nutrients for the body’s growth and function, and b) to act as a barrier to keep harmful solutes, luminal antigens, and microorganisms from entering the blood. When the integrity of this complex system is disturbed and intestinal permeability exists, ill-health can easily develop (see Table 1 below). Many conditions such as autoimmune disorders, autism, food sensitivities, inflammatory bowel disease, and jaundice are associated with increased intestinal permeability, which is also known as ‘leaky gut’ (see Table 1 below).
